Connect Hair Studio and Timpano Formalwear proudly offered this award to a graduating Saint Joan of Arc student who possessed inner beauty and inner strength and created an enormous impact on those around them. They sought no recognition or reward but gave of themselves to others.

The Gatsby Garden Benefit was organized by the Event Divas. It was a relaxing afternoon with dancing to a live band, silent auctions, champagne cocktails and plenty of photo opportunities. As a sponsor of this successful event, we were proud to be supporting the Women and Childrenís Shelter of Barrie once again! The last photo is of Charlie from Kool FM getting her Roaring 20’s hairstyling with Alison.

What a huge success! This second annual event was designed to allow local small businesswomen an opportunity to showcase their businesses to other women, whilst raising money for this year’s community partner  The Barrie Women and Children’s Shelter. We exceeded our goal of $5000!

Our contribution is equivalent to the operating / support program costs for one week at the shelter, which usually has as many as 30 women and children seeking safety, help and support.

Thank you to the nearly 100 local businesses who supported the event with products, prizes, or service, the people who attended the event and the staff who worked tirelessly. And a huge thank you to the brave ladies who shared their stories of hope with us.

Thank you,
Sharon
